Description

Jesada Technik Museum is the biggest vehicle museum in Thailand and in the region. There are hundreds of transport vehicles on display, including cars, trucks, motorcycles, tricycles, bicycles, buses as well as planes, a helicopter, trains, farm and construction equipment — all part of the private collections of Khun Jesada Dejsakulri, a long-time automobile enthusiast.

Khun Jesada’s first acquisition included the Messerschmitt KR200, a German Microcar purchased through an auction in Switzerland in 1997. A decade later, the collection increased very fast to about 500 vehicles, which promoted Khun Jesada to establish a museum for the purposes of maintaining public interest and preserving the history and heritage of vehicles and machines. In January 2007, Jesada Technik Museum opened its doors to the public. (Incidentally, the “K” in the word “Technik” is inspired from Technik Museum Speyer, a famous transport museum in Germany.) There is no admission fee.

Visitors are free to wander around at their leisure and enjoy vintage, newer and rarely seen vehicles. Vehicles are in various states of repair or restoration. The collection focuses on European brands, but also has a few specimens from the U.S. Families that enjoy mechanical contraptions will appreciate the exhibits and could spend well over an hour here; others with no interest in vehicles may find it boring after a short time.

The museum is outside of Bangkok in Nakhon Pathom province, about a 80 to 90 minutes drive from the city centre.
